70,000 years ago, the human race almost went extinct.
We survived. But no one knows how.
A new extinction level event has just begun. And humanity may not survive this time.
The greatest mystery of all time...
The truth about human origins...
Will be revealed.
Experience the worldwide bestseller with OVER THREE MILLION COPIES sold in 20 languages (and now in development to be a major motion picture).
In Antarctica, researchers find a mysterious structure buried deep in the ice. It’s thousands of years old, and something is guarding it. Inside, the team makes a discovery that will rewrite human history--and could set off an extinction level event.
Dr. Kate Warner moved to Jakarta, Indonesia to escape her past. She still hasn’t recovered from what happened to her, but she has made the breakthrough of a lifetime: a cure for autism. But Kate’s discovery is far more dangerous than she ever imagined.
When two children are abducted from her clinic, Kate is thrust into a global conspiracy with far-reaching consequences. A secret society believes her work may be the key to unleashing the next stage of human evolution. It’s an event that will wipe out 99.9% of the human race, and they will stop at nothing to find her and obtain her research.
Is Kate’s work related to the discovery in Antarctica? Can she recover the children in time? And save herself? Who built the structure in Antarctica? And why?
The race to find the Atlantis Gene has begun. And humanity will be changed forever.
SELECTED PRAISE AND PUBLISHED REVIEWS
“...reads like a superior collaboration between Dan Brown and Michael Crichton.”
-- The Guardian on PANDEMIC
“I finished the book fast because I just couldn’t wait...”
-- GeekDad on DEPARTURE
“Riddle (The Origin Mystery trilogy) makes an effort to keep the focus on how his characters react to each other (including to their future selves) rather than to the technological marvels that reshaped their world.”
-- Publisher’s Weekly on DEPARTURE
“Well-constructed and tightly-wound as a fine Swiss watch- DEPARTURE has non-stop action, an engaging plot and, of course, wheels within wheels.”
-- Diana Gabaldon, bestselling author of Outlander on DEPARTURE
